How to detect Mold behind walls?

Asked by Edukatd, 08840 Sat Sep 15, 2012

Many homes in Metuchen experienced the flooding of Hurricane Irene last August and the power outages that lasted several days. It appears a number of homes (and Condos) with finished basements removed the standing floor water but did nothing about water "wicked up" ( like a sponge) into the sheetrock and insulation. Now there is mold hidden behind the walls. Some homeowners have tried to hide this with new paint? How best to detect and remediate the condition?
